Concert Under the Stars

 The 2018 Concert was on Saturday, June 9th, 2018

Updike Farmstead

The Concert Under the Stars has become the kick-off event of the summer. Different from the typical benefit gala, the Concert is a casual “boots and blue jeans” affair with delicious local food and drink, fabulous upbeat music, and an unparalleled historic setting. It is truly not to be missed!

Chas Collins

2018 Mainstage Act

HSP was thrilled to welcome Chas Collins, straight out of Nashville’s vibrant music scene, to the Concert stage! Whether it’s his signature vocals or high-energy stage show, it’s no secret why Chas debuted on CMT’s Top 10 Artists List. Chas and his band have shared the stage with several other national acts including Luke Bryan, Collin Raye, Bucky Covington, Daryl Singletary, David Ball, and Hotel California. He plays his hard hitting originals and current country hits along with a touch of rock and crowd favorites. Performing in 43 States and over 2,300 shows, Chas has taken the country music world by storm, with no signs of slowing down!


Sheridan Gates

2018 Opening Act

Originally from Pennington, NJ, Sheridan Gates made the move to Nashville in 2016 to pursue her passion of music. She was a local finalist in the Nash Next competition in her first year in Nashville and will be embarking on a House Concert tour this spring/summer. Sheridan is a country pop artist influenced by the rock ‘n’ roll storytelling of Carrie Underwood, the soulfulness of Sara Bareilles, and the bold attitude of Shania Twain to create an entirely new, relatable and reflective sound.
